Situational Leadership® II is both a business language and a framework for employee development, teaching leaders to diagnose the needs of an individual and then use the appropriate leadership style to respond to the needs of the person.

Leveraging all the theory and design that has made SLII the world’s most taught leadership training model for more than 35 years, the new learning design of SLII uses game-changing techniques that immerse learners quickly, deeply, and effectively. See “Leading in the New Normal” by Scott Blanchard for more information.
